Main concept in designing this rack was to make it look simple, modest and delicate. Inspirations were taken from nature (wood, tree branches) but they were not supposed to be expressed literally. The most stress was put on vertical directions, slightly broken by angular “branching”.

Composition consists of 3 main vertical elements on a triangular base (equilateral ) of 4200 mm side length and filleted edges, 36 mm thickness . Those three elements have different height 400, 1000 and 1600 mm, according to user’s requirements. Lower part is supposed to work as a support for leg when tying shoes. Middle part works as a coat rack, but could also be comfortably used as a umbrellas hanger. The highest element is a coat and hat rack. Every vertical element has a short “branch” close to its top, creating impression of tree branch. Branches create a 60 degree angle with vertical element and are directed towards the triangular base’s edges. It works both for composition issues and support the weight forces. To emphasize natural correlation every metal element is finished with short wooden part.

Construction is made of metal pipes of 20mm diameter and 2 mm wall thickness. Pipes are welded to the metal plate 120x120mm and 2mm thickness with drilled holes for better connection. Base consists of two parts, upper and lower, each 18mm thick and with same triangular shape. In upper part there are drilled three holes for three vertical metal pipes. To this part metal plate with welded pipes is connected with screws. Lower part with cutout hole of 170 mm diameter is glued to the upper part. It serves also as a cover for a metal plate construction. To each vertical metal pipe its own metal branch is welded. Wooden finishing made of wooden pipes is stacked into each of visible ends.
